I am continuing my exploration of free online sport coaching education with this month’s resource for sport coaches; Winning with Asthma. Thanks to the Minnesota Board of Health, this online resource including a self-guided coaching education program and other resources focuses on what coaches, referees, and physical education teachers should know about asthma, including:
- Asthma basics
- What medications are used and when
- Ways to prevent exercise-induced asthma
- Steps to take when athletes are experiencing asthma attacks, including suggestions for cold-weather sports
As an life-long athlete who has dealt with the challenges of asthma, I highly recommend coaches check this resource out as part of their professional development plan.
